“Science Education at National and International Level”
Exploring the Biological Themes of the Galapagos Islands:
Using the Environment to Teach Science
Audience members will embark on a richly illustrated tour of the unique biology and geology of the Galapagos Islands. The talk is organised around the themes of voyages of discovery and biological principles such as ethology, adaptive radiation, colonization, endemic forms, special adaptations to island life, biozonation and the challenges of preservation and access to one of the worlds’ most special and fragile ecosystems.
